One of the most efficient ways to limit the access to your website is to block the IP addresses of the individuals which mustn't be able to open it. There are numerous good reasons to do that. For instance, you may want a particular individual not to be able to see your website, or you could restrict the access for a whole state. You may also block IP addresses in case you notice that there are way too many Internet browser requests from them, if many spam comments are left within your sites or if a script login page has been loaded many times. In all of these scenarios, the traffic is most likely fake and has been produced by an automatic bot, so you may safely block any questionable IP address, to be on the safe side. That way, you will also avoid the prospect of your web server getting overloaded by a lot of fake requests.

IP Blocking in Shared Website Hosting

If you have a shared website hosting account with our company and you wish to block one or a number of IP addresses, you may use the IP Blocking tool, that's integrated into our in-house built Hepsia CP. By using a really simple interface, you could prevent any IP from accessing your content even if you have not had a web hosting account before. All it requires to do that is to log inside to your Control Panel, to navigate to the IP Blocking section, to select a certain domain or subdomain from a drop-down menu and then to enter the IP address. You'll not have to do anything complex if you want to block an entire network - you will just have to omit the last octet, so entering 1.1.1. with a blank space after the last dot will block the whole range from 1.1.1.1 to 1.1.1.255. All blocked IPs will be listed in the same section, so you'll be able to remove any of them from the blacklist with a click.

IP Blocking in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server accounts feature a rather simple-to-use IP blocking tool, which will allow you to restrict individual IPs or even whole networks from accessing your Internet sites with simplyseveral mouse clicks and you won't have any issues to achieve that even if that's your first hosting account. As soon as you go to the IP Blocking section of the Hepsia Control Panel, you will just need to select the domain or subdomain you need from a drop-down list, then input the IP address within a box that you will see there and you will be good to go. To prohibit the access for an entire network, you will need to leave one or more octets blank. For example, if you input 123.123. and do not type anything within the third and fourth positions, our web server will deny requests from all IP addresses between 123.123.1.1 and 123.123.255.255.
